Amboy Lions stay busy by giving back to community


AMBOY — The Amboy Lions Club is staying busy during the pandemic by giving back to the community.  

The Club recently donated $300 each to local area food pantries: The Baptist Church Food Pantry, St. Patrick’s Food Pantry, and the Amboy Fire Department Food Baskets. 

These donations have been ongoing to these organizations for many years.

This is just another way in which the Lions are able to serve and support our community.

In other news, Lions Roger Wittenauer and Jim Travi got into the Christmas spirit by hanging the holiday wreaths at the two Amboy welcome signs. 

Preliminary plans are starting up to hold another community health fair event during the fall of 2021. The Health Fair planned for 2020 had to be canceled due to the Covid-19 Virus.

Lions Club Scholarship applications for graduating AHS 20/21 seniors will be made available through Amboy High School Counselor, Rob Wissinger, in mid to late January.

The Club would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe and healthy new year.
